NASHVILLE --- Lane Clark earned adidas Ohio Valley Conference Specialist of the Week honors for his efforts against Southeast Missouri.
Clark connected on three field goals, including the game-winner with 2:07 to play, as Tennessee State defeated Southeast Missouri 23-20. The senior booted field goals of 37 and 45 yards in the first quarter and added the game-winning 44-yarder in the fourth quarter. Clark leads the OVC and ranks fifth nationally in field goals/game (1.44) and 29th in scoring (7.1 points/game).
The senior kicker recorded 11 points versus SEMO, which tied for seventh most in a game by a Tiger kicker. Clark scored 12 points a week ago (sixth best in TSU history) against Virginia University Lynchburg.
Clark surpassed Charles Anthony to place fifth in all-time career points with 254 at Tennessee State, after kicking for 11 points against the Redhawks.
The award is the third for Clark this season and the fifth of his career.
